Dairy Australia - Dairy information for Australian Dairy Farmers and the industry

Primary content

Our Farm, Our Plan is a new program developed by Dairy Australia with support from the Gardiner Dairy Foundation and DairyNZ. It is designed to equip farmers to clarify their long term goals, identify the actions needed and to manage uncertainty and risk.

Having a clear view of long term business and personal goals helps to make better decisions, especially the big decisions. Our Farm, Our Plan keeps it simple and takes long term plans and ideas from your head and gets them down on one page. The ‘Plan on a Page’ requires agreement, is able to be shared and enables you to track your progress.

Our Farm, Our Plan gets your plans on one page, and everyone on the same page
